InkCenter® offers superior quality and cost savings while good for the environment
CARLSBAD, California, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Retail Inkjet Solutions (RIS) and Swiss supermarket retailer Migros Geneva today announced InkCenter® installations at two retail locations in Switzerland. Customers shopping at the MParc – La Praille "melectronics" in Geneva, as well as those shopping at the "mprint-shop" within the Centre Commercial Lancy-Onex, can now take advantage of the fast, easy and cost-effective InkCenter® refill service, powered by RIS.
The expansion into the Swiss market with Migros, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, follows an earlier successful InkCenter® launch at Migros France in July of this year, and reflects the growing presence of RIS in the European market. The RIS InkCenter® features a patented, precision refill system that professionally cleans, fills, and tests each cartridge to ensure flawless performance at up to 50 percent in cost savings over a new cartridge each time.
"Taking this next step with Migros Geneva by installing two more InkCenters® in Switzerland is a testament to the relationship we have already cultivated with Migros this year. It shows again that retailers are acknowledging a rising demand for our ink refilling services. We are seeing a heightened awareness of eco-friendly alternatives that give consumers the power to make their own choices on how to minimize their plastic waste and our ink cartridge refill service provides exactly that," said David Lenny, President and CEO of RIS. "Moreover, we are pleased to be able to offer consumers a much more cost-effective way to use their home office printers during this global pandemic as we continue to work towards making affordable, high-quality ink available to all consumers in Europe."
"We are pleased to offer our customers an efficient, economical and environmentally friendly solution for filling used ink cartridges. I am convinced of the commercial success of the concept in our stores," said Romuald Langeron, head of melectronics and mprint-shop at Migros Geneva.
Vincent Hormovitis, Vice President of Sales & Business Development at RIS, added, "We have found a like-minded partner in Migros Geneva as we are both passionate about offering customers great quality ink refills at an even better price, especially during these trying times. Expanding our InkCenter® network to Switzerland for the first time through our partnership with Migros Geneva demonstrates their strong willingness to readily provide an eco-friendly and economical solution to customers at these two retail locations. We are optimistic that there are more to come soon."
